    I have a raised bed made of railway sleepers (it's been there years). It seems to have moved slightly and the garden gate now catches and can't be opened without real force. Should I sand or plane the railway sleeper? Or the gate?

    Hello. I have a boiler flue that runs through the kitchen wall, into the adjacent room and out through the external wall in that room. I intended to use this room as a bedroom for my little girl. Is it possible ie safe to box a flue pipe in in this sort of situation? Thanks!

    Could you tell me what safety precautions are necessary for working with medium-density fibreboard? How does preparing to work with this type of wood differ to working with other types of wood? What tools, equipment and products might I need to consider using with this type of wood, whether for treating it, sustaining it or preparing it for initial installation? Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back.
